The gap between beliefs

There is blue sky above

And there is the dirt at our feet

You wouldn’t think it would ever be confused

But it so very often is

There is truth

And the truth that we tell ourselves is true

Belief makes things difficult to decipher

The one from the other

A jet pilot flying at the speed of light

Loses sight

Of what is up

And what is down

Crashing

How?

Was it the speed

The warped perspective

Or the belief

The brought him low

I guess no one knows

And the dead tell no stories

In the end

There is the truth

And that which we tell ourselves is true

The gap between theories

So slim

It might only be a sideways glance

But it changes everything
